The cabled braid in Elegantia echoes the wave of your wand while casting spells by the palace fountain in the gardens.
A cabled braid forms the empire waist on this charming top,featuring a flared picot eging.

Elegantia is knit in the round from the bottom up with front pleats before flowing into the shapely braided waist. A zip fastening ensures the top is easy to put on.

Elegantia is a pattern from Beautiful Knits for Beautiful Sticks book
